Consumers Magazine gave the z10 a very positive review except for the frequent "no home button" complaint. I don't find the two swipes to get back a big deal but am assuming that if the complaints turn into a crescendo I am assuming that BB could add that functionality in future OS releases somehow...

Not a chance.
That's the whole idea behind BB10, not having to go through your homescreen every time you want to move on to another app. BB10 was designed to use swipes efficiently to move around your phone and having a Home button would defeat that purpose. Getting back to your homescreen on the Z10 can be done in as little as one swipe, depending on what you're currently doing. If you REALLY need a home button, other smartphone platforms have it, but have a look at all the positive press the Z10 is getting for its design and decide if that's really what you need.
